MY REVIEW

Excellent! Simple, moist, dense and just sweet enough. I was hesitant to make a yeast banana bread but I was pleasantly surprised. I will be making this on a regular basis! (I think French toast will be delicious with this bread, too!)

I can hardly believe there is no sugar in this, There is the honey of course but so small amount. I used raw honey. Great bread recipe!

I was super pleased with this recipe. Most bread machine recipes I've tried are too heavy or too dry, but this loaf was just right. Nice texture and excellent flavor with the hint of cinnamon.
